Jo-Wilfried Tsonga won his second consecutive ATP title by dispatching Lucas Pouille in the final of the Marseille Open on Sunday.
Last week's winner of the Rotterdam Open Tsonga prevailed 6-4 6-4 against fellow Frenchman Pouille to claim the championship in his home country.
The pair of titles are Tsonga's first since 2015 and come handily in the build-up to the French Open, the next Grand Slam on the horizon.
Tsonga is now a three-time champion at the Marseille Open, and has collected his 14th career ATP title.
He broke Pouille once in each set in a combined 69 minutes to win his ninth match in a row. It is likely to be enough to restore the new champion to the ATP's top 10 rankings.
"I played great tennis all week, like last week," said the in-form Tsonga. "I was never in too much danger. I served very well each time it was close."
